This past summer I took a photography class at RISD. I've always loved taking pictures, but this course helped me learn how to get out of the dreaded "automatic" mode and start playing with aperture, ISO and shutter speed. Here are some of my favorites from the landscape black and white assignment which were taken in Wickford, RI. Wickford is a really special place. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend spending a few hours there.
